Ripple Labs transfers 27.7 million XRP tokens to Bitstamp

Ripple Labs transfers 27.7 million XRP tokens to Bitstamp

Ripple Labs recently transferred a substantial amount of its cryptocurrency, with a total of 27.7 million XRP, valued at roughly $14.4 million, to Bitstamp. 

According to the data from Whale Alert, the transfer originated from a wallet not immediately identifiable. However, Bithomb Explorer’s deeper analysis indicated that the wallet is linked to Ripple Labs, with a transaction history dating back to February 2022. This wallet has demonstrated consistent outflows, suggesting it’s a primary channel for Ripple Labs to manage its financial assets.

Such large-scale transfers are not unusual for Ripple Labs, particularly in light of its monthly escrow releases. The monthly escrow is in place to create certainty of XRP supply at any given time and to mitigate concerns about unloading substantial XRP holdings onto the market in an uncontrolled manner, which could potentially destabilize the market price. Each month, a total of one billion XRP is released from escrow. This provides a predictable supply to the market and Ripple itself.

While the exact purpose of these smaller transactions remains unconfirmed, it’s speculated that the coins may be aimed at enhancing operational liquidity. The transfer also hasn’t notably impacted the market sentiment, as XRP’s market performance today has been positive. The altcoin has experienced a 1% increase in value, alongside a significant 83% surge in trading volume over the last 24 hours.
